E They're going fast... 'Words from the wise.
Following NASAs announcement last month
about the potential discovery of life on Mars,
Stuart tylor takes a look at one of the more
controversial implications of this highly
remarkable discovery.
On TuesdayAugust 6th 1996, NASA
administrator Daniel Goldin said the following,
highly significant, words:
"NASA has made a startling discovery that
points to the possibility that a primitive form of
microscopic life may have existed on Mars
more than three billion years ago." Ever since
that historic moment, the meteorite fragment,
labelled ALH 84001, has re-ignited the debate
on whether or not we are alone in the universe.
However, Goldin made a point that the
lifeforms themselvesare only smali, single-ce11

The religious community has slowly been coming to terms with the idea that humanity
might not have such a unique status in the universe.
According to Sayyid Syeed of the Islamic Society of North America, the Koran gives
man a specific mission on Earth, but there is room to interpret that God may have given
other life-forms a mission on other planets.
Fundamentalist evangelist, Jerry Falwell, states quite categorically that the NASA
scientistswill not find the concrete evidence they need to prove that life did exist on
Mars. "The Bible makes it clear that Jesus Christ is the only mediator between God and
Man", saysFalwell.
However, NASAs researchcan only be 'celebrated' according to Rabbi JamesRuden of
the American Jewish Committee. He saysthat most Jews' interpretation of Genesisallows
for the possibiliry of life on other planets. Rather than damage the structure of their faith,
Ruden feels that if the findings became conclusivethen it would only serve to re-affirm

Another UFO case currently getting the

incident of last year. On this occasion, a British
Airways Boeing 737 flying from Milan to
Manchester was involved in a near fatal collision
with a triangular-shaped object. The pilots Mark
Stuart and Roger'Wills both filed 'air near miss'
reports as a result of their experience.They
claimed that the object had passed within just feet
of their atrcrak.
Radar operators were unable to lock on to the
second object, but other eyewitnesseson the
ground also saw the object in relation to the
Boeing, and ther'efore confirmed what the pilots
had reported. The pilots also drew sketches of the
object, which do resemble the Waverider with
startling accuracy. But could the X(averider be
